Seriously lacks talent of any kind
The first scene of 1408 is somewhat promising with decent moody rain and Cusack driving an SUV. After another 10 minutes or so you really begin to notice the immense flaws in everything. The directing is none-existent, the actors act without any feeling, the scenes makes dramatic jumps with no relevance at all and there is no atmosphere to grasp.
This movie is so bad that it's mostly harmless. I found my eyes seeking towards the furniture in the room where it played instead of looking at the screen because of the bizarre lack of any immersion.
But this isn't all. What frightened me the most is the unbearably bad basic character psychology. Cusack shifts mood like a confused chameleon, and the mood shifts are without any logics at all. At first he takes the role of an experienced and cool horror author but halfway through the movie he suddenly shifts to an hysteric wreck, and this hasn't been introduced the slightest. Not to mention Jackson who plays as bad as I've ever seen him. Phew... I shouldn't be analyzing this crap anymore at it's pointless.
Please, save yourself from the shame of seeing this movie.
